If I let myself, I would become obsessed with him. I can’t do that.
Vince Marr is a veteran Marine volunteering at Dog Haven. Crippled by PTSD and flashbacks of Afghanistan, he’s desperate to find some kind of peace in his life. When he meets Lulah, her smile warms his heart to the very core, and she immediately gains his trust.
But there are some things better left unspoken, and when Lulah pushes him to open up, all he can do is run away from her prying eyes. If she knew what he was, what he did, she wouldn’t love him anymore.
Lulah has spent her life bailing out her dad from one gambling addiction after another. The last thing she needs in her life is another unstable man. But Vince is different from any other man she’s ever met, and she can’t help longing for the strong, silent hero that she sees behind the scars.
Despite everything, as they train a rescued pit bull together, Vince and Lulah can’t help falling more and more in love. But Lulah isn’t ready to throw herself headlong into a shaky situation, and Vince isn’t ready to reveal the memories that haunt his nightmares. Their relationship teeters between ecstasy and terror, and neither one wants to give up on the promise of love hovering right in front of them.
How does a scarred soul learn to love again?
